This look is a must-read for the serious fan."----Billy Beane, Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations, Oakland A's

"In Smart Baseball, Keith Law deftly answers everything you always wanted to know about sabermetrics but were too afraid to ask. Its final three chapters probably each deserve their own books, and hopefully Law will oblige.
